Cardiff is the capital city of Wales and offers visitors an array of action packed activities to make the trip one to remember. From top class shopping to every imaginable type of entertainment, this Welsh hotspot has its fair share of unique attractions, of which Cardiff Castle is one.
One of the country’s leading heritage attractions, Cardiff Castle has been witness to more than 2000 years of history and is nestled amidst parklands in the heart of the Welsh Capital.
The castle is the fusion of several different types of architectural style; a Roman fort, a classic Norman fortress and a Gothic-Victorian restoration.
The Roman fort at Cardiff Castle was estimated to have been built around 50 AD and you can still view the remains of the Roman wall.
Until 1766 the castle passed through the hands of many families until the Bute family took ownership through marriage. Coincidentally, the second Marquess of Bute was responsible for turning Cardiff into the world’s largest port for coal exportation.
Architect William Burges was employed by the third Marquess of Bute to improve the castle’s lodgings. Richness and opulence were key components of his vision; stained glass, murals, marble and wood carvings were just a few of the transformative processes to take place.
The Bute family remained in Cardiff Castle until early 1900’s and following the death of the fourth Marquess of Bute, the family decided to give the Castle and much of its parkland, known as Bute Park, to the city of Cardiff.
The castle has fulfilled various roles over the years and was home to the National College of Music and Drama for quite some time. One of the most popular visitor attractions in Wales, the Castle continues to draw crowds year after year.
You can visit the castle for a walk around or take a guided tour to explore the handiwork of Burges and don’t forget to take a trip to the top of the building to sample some of the best views of the city. For an alternative night out you can also hire the castle for private functions or book a traditional Welsh Banquet to enjoy with friends and family.
If you are travelling to the castle by road, take exit 32 from the M4 and follow the A470 to Cardiff city centre. The castle is a mere ten minute walk from Cardiff Central Station so can therefore be easily reached if you are travelling by public transport.
If you are planning to stay in the city then you should find the selection of Cardiff Hotels varied enough to suit every taste and budget, from luxurious retreats to cheap and cheerful options for those travelling on a budget.

Summer is a variety of infectious diseases, high season, young children are more vulnerable to pathogens is compromised. Yesterday, the reporter found that many children’s play facilities, inflatable castles are not long-term clean-up, the clean way is worrying. When looking at the press department, but faced a “health no control” embarrassment.
Yesterday morning, a reporter through a shopping mall Liuquan Road Zhangdian District in the door, a man is cleaning a large inflatable castles. I saw the man standing barefoot put a gas inflatable castles are toys with a clean mop water, he often went to the roadside, his hands on the water wrung out mop, and then continue to use. “Master, do not clean up with a mop health, right?” A reporter approached asked, “so big a thing, do not mop with what?” The man asked rhetorically, “Consumers should also disinfect drag it over?” Reporter asked, “disinfection? What is this thing also eliminate toxic? so would then wipe the cloth on the line. “says the man. Finished, the man complained to reporters together. It turned out long ago with children urinating on toys. Journalists can not help but worry about them, this clean-up methods can clean out the bacteria above it?
Yesterday afternoon, the inflatable castles on health management, the reporter first contacted the Zhangdian urban management department, and they said they are only responsible for the approval of the large inflatable castles, is not responsible for their health management, then, the reporter also were contacted Zibo Municipal Health Inspection Bureau, Centers for Disease Control Zhangdian District, Zhangdian District Health Board and the Zhangdian District Sanitation Bureau, said they were not his own jurisdiction. “Is health really inflatable castles nobody management?” Journalists will continue to focus on the matter.
Watched the clean-up after the manner of the operators, and some parents also expressed the same concerns. “Whether the child can be clean and not clean up after their bed to keep up with, like, sitting, lying down, tummy, like how to play on how to play, constant contact with the skin surface, toys, do not want to spread germs is immune.” Most people think, whether it is children’s play area in the fitness facilities or equipment, should be regularly cleaned and disinfected, or vulnerable to become the route of transmission of germs.
